Domain name pointing to wrong IP

Specs: 2003 SBS, P4 2GB

I have a website hosted on my network on a linux box at When I try to go to from my internal network, the dns resolves to, this server's old IP address, and not it's external IP address. Is this a problem somewhere inside my windows 2003 DNS server? Thanks!

I would think it is a DNS issue. Check through your (A)Host records for all incidents of that domain name and then check the IP within in it.

You'll have to bear with me, I'm new to DNS. Where should I look at the A Hosts in windows 2003?

Open the DNS admin console.

I don't have access to a 2003 server where I am at the moment so can't give you more detailed info on exactly what to click on to get there.

Start by having a look in Administrative Tools.

Ok, that did it. I had to go under admin tools -> DNS, and it was listed there. I changed it to the correct IP address and it worked like a charm. Thanks!
